The grand jury's decision on whether to indict Wilson, who shot and killed 18-year-old Brown in August, could come this week. Read »

Flake did not weigh in on whether suing the president over his executive action was appropriate, but did say that he thought President Obama had "moved beyond his authority." Read »
